Mary Magdalene

It is over! He is dead! His body has been taken down from the cross and taken to the burial place. And, once more Mary Magdalee was crying. So many tears in her life -- tears of shame and guilt, tears of happiness and joy, and now, tears of agony and pain. She had taken her spices to prepare his body for burial but she had not taken enough. Now his body would have to lie there unfinished until after the Sabbath had passed. Saturday was like living a nightmare over and over again. Like everything was done and yet somehow undone. He was dead and buried yet the burial was incomplete. Just like her life without her Lord -- undone and incomplete. Join us for Easter Sunday services at 8:30 or 11 AM to hear the rest of Mary's witness.
